Squirrels Leap, Squirrels Sleep by April Pulley Sayre

Squirrels Leap, Squirrels Sleep by April Pulley Sayre; illustrated by Steve Jenkins. 2016. Ink, cut and torn paper collage.

Brief summary: In rhyming prose, we see how the four types of squirrels(red, gray, fox, and flying) live in the forest. They gather food, climb trees, and get ready for winter.

Comments: This is a book that could be shelved in the easy section as well as nonfiction.

Best in Snow by April Pulley Sayre; illustrated by April Pulley Sayre. 2016. Photography.

Brief summary: Superb photos of snow in nature with all its forms and shapes. Begins with snow on a squirrel’s nose and then explores how snow looks and forms in the forest with snow in its full water cycle and then ending on a squirrel’s nose again.

Comments: Very well done. You really need to see it to appreciate the beauty of this book. I can’t imagine the patience it took to get all of these high end photos of the various forms of snow and in the forest. I nominate this as the number one winter book this year. I would suggest pairing it with her companion that came out last year, Raindrops Roll. I can’t wait to see what she creates next.
